VADA to use CHSI Technologies cloud-based system

Virginia Automobile Dealers Association (VADA) Group Self-Insurance Association (GSIA) is set to implement the CHSI Technologies cloud-based suite of configurable core systems software.

VADA GSIA provides its members with effective workers' compensation coverage.

According to Michael Allen, general manager of VADA GSIA, the implementation is part of a larger plan to take all six of VADA's operations to the cloud.

Allen said: “Like a lot of self-insured groups, we've had a policy administration server in place for more than 25 years, and CHSI's offering of their configurable core systems modules via Microsoft's Azure cloud platform will help us realise our larger plan.”

“The [workers' compensation] formula is the formula, so our goal is to become as efficient as possible in order to offer competitive pricing and cutting-edge claims and loss control services. To do that we need to get off the server and move to modern systems that run in the cloud.”

Jim Leftwich, founder and CEO of CHSI Technologies, added: “We are pleased to be able to provide cloud-based connections' configurable software and additional services to help GSIA build on the quality of their highly rated services, and to serve as a platform for their growth.”
